UK rapper Skepta and Nike will be expanding their partnership with another Air Max collaboration, this time on the Air Max Deluxe.
Dressed in a Black and Deep Red color scheme. This Nike Air Max Deluxe reinterpretation of the iconic 1999 Air Max Deluxe (known for its bold printed uppers) features design details inspired by the insomnia of long nights on the road. The medial side of the shoe reads “NEVER SLEEP ON TOUR,” an ethos that has fueled Skepta’s work rate. The upper pattern draws from the VHS static-led aesthetic found in the award-winning video for “That’s Not Me.” In a final nod, that single’s release date is printed on the shoe’s lateral side.
